    I dont think so. It needs 8 1.5 volt batteries so its 12 volts, 8 1.2volt rechargables would be 9.6 volts and thats usually when most controllers start blinking red.

    Many people run nimh in their radios. I've got them in right now at 10.8 volts and full battery meter. Thats why they have charging jacks for radios.

    and a http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXLJJ0&P=M since i'm not sure what kind of charger you'd need for the radio itself.

    RE: BATTERY PACK FOR TRANSMITTER?

    have any of you tried using the rechargeable Alkalines? I use some by Pure Energy (you can get them from Sundance Solar). They are 1.5V and seem to be great rechargeable batteries. You can not charge them with a NiMH only charger however (must say specifically for alkaline, but will do NiMH also). I just wonder if anyone else is doing this. Seems like a less expensive alternate to the multicell NiCD packs while still getting the higher voltage rating.

    It might have a higher voltage rating, but the charge and battery life does not last nearly as long.

    yes rechargable AA's work really well. Most transmitters use very little power and I can go for several hours on one charge.

    they'd have to drop their prices before i threw a penny at them. tower is still cheaper to get the venom 2400's.

    I removed the battery tray from my radio and measured the voltage of the output terminals, i had fresh alkaline batteries, the O/P was 10.5V. In order to determine the output its not always a simple matter of multiplying the number of batteries by the amt of volts of individual cells, it also depends on how they are connected!!
    Anyway, if the output of the batteries in the battery tray is 10.5V and your battery tray can be unplugged and removed then you can use a 9.6V transmitter pack instead, thats what i'm using without any trouble!!

    how do you take the tray out from the bottom?

    You may need to loosen the screws at the bottom of the radio, when you do you'll be able to just twist the tray out. Most if not all the radios i've seen are of modular construction so you can remove the radio tray. Some trays can be unplugged (they have futaba J style connector) or in other cases you may need to clip the wires because there is no connector.
    If you have no connector, you'll need a female J style connector, install it to the wires inside the radio that you have clipped, (its just two wires so its easy) and viola all you need to do is to plug your 9.6V (8 cell) reciever pack
